Illustration Friday : Gravity



Can pigs actually fly? Yes, but only with a little help from a cannon. And don't ask me how he fit in there in the first place. It was probably a tight squeeze for the daring piglet. I haven't posted this on illustration Friday yet because it's almost 2am, I'm tired and have an appointment with my pillow. Can't be late.

Rendered with watercolors on soft press Fabriano watercolor paper. A very large illustration too - measuring about 14 inches wide. Click to enlarge.

How the pig squeezed into the cannon, simple. Plunger. How he crashed through a brick wall escaping all injury, there lies the real mystery.

By the way, I think the fly cathing frog would also make a great book mark.

Hi there, we happened to use the same "Pigs May Fly" take on the subject, but I really love where you took yours! It looks like you have at least three weeks worth of IF topics in one image as well: Gravity, Crash, and Red. Nicely done. :)
